I really think that Sergei has matured and has taken on a real leadership role, along with Vik Kozlov. Semin, Ovechkin and Varlamov have a lot to be thankful for, and the leadership of Kozlov and Fedorov has a lot to do with it.
It was a great goal, game/series winner. And he smoked avery shortly after that. Way to go Feds. He should still be a wing.
Yup, good for him. He seems to fit in real good there. That goal reminded me of the goal he scored against Washington in game 3 of the finals.
That shot brought back so many memories, Sergei's clutch in the playoffs.But thinking of him, I was thinking: In 2002, he's one of the future Hall of Famers on the Wings' dream team, but what about now? From 2003 on, has he essentially "played himself out?"
That was a beautiful thing to behold, and it made me very happy, not to mention nostalgic. It's been a long time since Sergei's done anything that spectacular, and with his career winding down, it might be the last great memory we see from him. Unless, saints preserve us, the Wings end up facing the Caps in the Finals, and Sergei kills us with a similar dagger in Game 7. So much for nostalgia, if that happens. ;)
